Restoring Independence To The Grand Jury: A Victim Advocate For The Police Use Of Force Cases, Jonathan Witmer-Rich 2017 Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Cleveland State University

Restoring Independence To The Grand Jury: A Victim Advocate For The Police Use Of Force Cases, Jonathan Witmer-Rich

Cleveland State Law Review

This Article proposes a grand jury victim advocate to represent the interests of the complainant before the grand jury in investigations into police use of excessive force. Currently, the prosecutor has near-exclusive access to the grand jury, and as a result, grand juries have become almost entirely dependent on prosecutors. Historically, however, grand juries exhibited much greater independence. In particular, grand juries have a long history in America of providing oversight over government officials, bringing criminal charges for official misconduct even when local prosecutors proved reluctant. Permitting the alleged victim of police excessive force to be represented before the grand ...

Coalitions And Collective Memories: A Search For Common Ground, Ediberto Román 2017 Florida International University College of Law

Coalitions And Collective Memories: A Search For Common Ground, Ediberto Román

Ediberto Roman

The following pages explore this contemporary debate, and ultimately sides in favor of inter-minority group coalitions, as they may be effective democratic vehicles towards social change. Part II examines the argument in favor of inter-minority group coalitions. Part III addresses the challenges to those positions, including the arguments posed by leading skeptics. Finally, Part IV rejects the cynicism associated with coalitions and proposes a concrete point of commonality that may help forge much needed common ground for many racial and ethnic outsider groups.


Love And Civil Rights, Ediberto Román 2017 Florida International University College of Law

Love And Civil Rights, Ediberto Román

Ediberto Roman

Despite western legal scholars' almost universal rejection of the use of emotions in legal analysis, the unquestionable greatest social activist and grassroots legal reformer of our times, and perhaps one of the greatest in the annals of time, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, understood a basic yet profound fact concerning societal change - the transformative power of love. During the era where he achieved the greatest influence, Dr. King knew that societal-wide change could not occur without transforming the American psyche on the basic fairness of the civil rights struggle. This civil rights struggle, which is now so closely associated with ...

Membership Denied: Subordination And Subjugation Under United States Expansionism, Ediberto Román, Theron Simmons

Ediberto Roman

As for the proposal this Article seeks to promote, the length and complexity of this undertaking hopefully demonstrates the difficulty in arriving at an easily identified solution. Century long colonial struggles by several distinct countries and millions of their inhabitants are not easily resolved. Nevertheless, there are certain procedural steps that can be undertaken which may promote the realization of self-determination. The United States should be true to its rhetoric and promote democratic efforts in these lands to achieve autonomy. It is not enough to promote self-determination for other powers' colonies. The subordination of citizens and nationals is not only ...

In July 2016, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit reheard en banc its own three-judge panel decision ruling that Texas Senate Bill 14 (SB 14), a law requiring individuals to present a form of photo identification in order to vote, was unconstitutional in violation of the First and Fifteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. The en banc Fifth Circuit reversed the District Court for the Southern District of Texas’s decision that SB 14 violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. The en banc Fifth Circuit ...
